The United States National Institutes of Health (NIH) is committed to setting research priorities that advance progress toward viral hepatitis elimination. In 2020, Dr. Harvey Alter, NIH researcher, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology for his contributions to the discovery of HCV, exemplifying the importance of NIH to hepatitis elimination efforts.
NIH and the Coalition for Global Hepatitis Elimination are launching a new webinar series, "Moving from Hepatitis Discovery to Elimination" to highlight ongoing research that can benefit elimination efforts, support translation of research into implementation, and identify additional research needs.
Third Webinar: May 13th, 3-4:45 pm ET
